Hungarian police have detained the director of the aluminum company responsible for a flood of caustic red sludge that killed eight people when it burst from its reservoir last week, the prime minister said Monday.
The cracking wall of an industrial plant reservoir appeared on the verge of collapse late Saturday, and engineers were working to blunt a possible second wave of the caustic red sludge that has already deluged several towns in western Hungary and killed seven.
Mr. Bakonyi said that MAL Rt. had not noticed anything irregular at the site.
"The reservoir — which our men patrol daily — did not show any physical signs that something of this nature could happen," Mr. Bakonyi said.
